Working on yourself, loving yourself, and bettering yourself is what will open the gates to having the love you’ve always wanted.
You think once you cross a certain point the worry will end … as soon as he calls me his girlfriend… as soon as we move in together … as soon as we get engaged … as soon as we set a date, but the end never comes. It’s a trap.
Whenever you catch yourself stressing, try to remind yourself that this is a huge waste of time and you’re getting nowhere.
Surround yourself with people who love you and see the best in you. Make time for your passions and for things that make you feel alive, charged, and revitalized.
Don’t punish yourself for someone else’s decisions or mistakes or stupidity. All his rejection means is he’s not the right guy for you.
He is the type of guy I refer to as a “damage case,” a guy who has a lot of potential hidden under a pile of issues. The “bad boy” who needs to be saved.
Not every woman gets postpartum depression, but pretty much every woman gets a slight case of the blues after the baby comes.
We want him to like us not so much because we really like him, but because it’s validating. It means we’re worthy and likable. It means we’re going to be OK. This is the wrong mindset.
We think they’re so confusing. We think it doesn’t make any sense. We think they play games and send mixed messages. We don’t understand why.
You have to deal with your damage. That’s the only way to get rid of it and not let it spill into our future and ruin it.
